Fulton Oysterfest 2010

The first weekend in March is prime time for Gulf oysters. It’s also the date for the annual Oysterfest in Fulton. I spent the weekend in this tiny fishing port near Rockport along with a whole lot of tourists. Every year, tens of thousands of festival-goers eat several tons of raw oysters. The oysters here are eaten under the big top with cold beer and live music. It reminded me a little of Galway’s Oyster Festival–only with Lone Star instead of Guinness.
